Abstract:

Computerized Work Sampling is a simplified method for obtaining work standards and other pertinent information for a work sampling study. The use of a random interval is an application of probability theory for determining the percent occurrence of each productive or non-productive work activity. The computer program is designed to accept raw data cards from on location observations or from cards punched from Work Sampling Observation sheets. The computer analyses the data on a daily basis and gives a summary for the entire study. The card listing for the Fortran computer program and its output are included in the Appendices.
